We have provided optical design and manufacturing service to major clients world-wide since 1999. Although we are experts in plastic based optical components and devices we have designed and developed complex optical systems including HUD display optics, satellite based telescopes (for a leading University) , microscopes , laser scanners , ophthalmic diagnostic instruments (London based University) and optics for mobile devices. Amonst the plastic products we have developed are LED illuminators, hazard beacons, fresnel lens arrays and motion sensing optics. We manufacture proof of concept prototypes of our designs if required by our clients.
Recent increases in demands for wearable and near eye displays, has resulted in UK optical plastics offering a custom design service for this type of application
Apart from classical optics solutions (such as that used in the BikeHUD wearable) UKOP has recently produced see-through wearable optics designs and designs based on electronically switchable diffractive components.
Uk Optical plastics limited is developing a technically challenging ship borne glide path indicator ( LED based signal beacon) for a major singapore based company
Signal visibility at 2km is anticipated with three narrow bands (ellipical beams) of different wavelengths and also separate near infrared channel , again in three bands.
UK Optical plastics and City University London sign a collaboration agreement to develop novel, compact ophthalmic diagnostic equipment
Discussions with third party manufacturers/investors are on going.
